Uncork Your Mind

Last Monday I held a Sparkling Wines of the World seminar over Zoom. It seems to be the thing these days for get-togethers. I wasn’t sure how many people, if any would even show up. When I go in front of people, I tend to get a little nervous. Nervous I am going to leave something out, but if you run into me on the street, I’ll vomit at the mouth with information. I guess the more I do these the more I won’t get nervous. Here are the video and audio of the seminar. It is an introductory seminar discussing many of the different sparkling wines around the world and how they are made....

This month of February on Winephabet Street Lori and I explored Egri Bikaver, better known as Bulls Blood. Egri Bikaver is from Hungary and better known as Bulls Blood. It is not a grape but a blend of 50% Kekfrankos (which we know as Blaufrankish or Lemberger) and the rest can be Kadarka, Syrah, Merlot, Portugieser, Minoir, Blauburger, Pinot Noir, Zweigelt or Turan.

What’s your wine unicorn? That was the question proposed by Lori Budd of Dracaena Wines. She runs a monthly online get-together called Wine Writer’s Wrap-up where we discuss different topics. I was in, but I had no idea what a wine unicorn was?

Upon further explanation, she told me it was a wine you are dying to try but perhaps out of reach, like Screaming Eagle. I did some soul searching and realized my wine-unicorn is an experience. An experience that could be tasting wine with a famous winemaker in his cellar or when a friend brings over a special bottle of wine they have been saving.

I’ve had many wine-unicorns. Here are just some of them:

  • Drinking Barons de Rothschild Champagne with Philippe Sereys de Rothschild at the US launch in New York City.
  • Lunch with Piper-Heidsieck’s cellar master Emilien Boutillat
  • Drinking Burgundy wine in the cellars of wonderful winemakers in that region
  • Drinking a bottle of Dom Perignon when a friend paid off her mortgage
  • Being the first to taste a new release at a winery.
  • Taking part in blending wine for the new release at a winery.

Those are just a few that come to mind. Watch the webinar or listen to the podcast as a group of us discuss our wine unicorns and what they mean.

Tell me what your Unicorn Wine is.
